In September 2012, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh joined the SUN Movement with high level commitment from HE Sheikh Hasina, the Prime Minister. Since then, strong support has grown for the engagement with and formalisation of a business network to align behind the governments efforts. With the support of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition and other partners, the Bangladesh SUN Business Network is operating today with dedicated staff and a new strategy under development.
